Operation Little Black Dress
Once Upon A Time...(in 2002) there was a young girl who lived on fast food and spent hours sitting in a car or classroom or doctors office. She was tired from working full time, going to school full time, and being a full time daughter, taking care of a terminally ill parent. She was tired, and sad, and hurting, and only a cheeseburger soothed her pain. Our tired, sad girl only got sadder when she gained a hundred and thirty pounds in three years. But one day the fates intervened and she was led, quite by accident, to the answer for her tired, sad ways. She found Spark people and woke herself from the terrible nightmare. She learned about food and exercise, how to heal her heart (literally and metaphorically), and about who she can be if she really wants it and was willing to change. So she ate right and ran and believed in herself and I think she is going to live happily ever after!
I'm aiming to be a runner, but since I have a broken foot, I'm gonna just work on being a walker. After I heal, I'll go for the other.
I refuse to diet anymore. I am managing my weight. Dieting draws to mind starvation and misery. When I manage my weight, I am in control. I choose to eat what is good for me, do what makes me stronger, and live a life that is joyous and healthy!
The facts: Kim from Ohio, over 21 and that's all I'll admit, relationship status is complicated. In dreamland, I make a living from writing, but reality says I make cheese.
Backbone or wishbone? It will mean so much more to put the work in for the things I want out of life than if someone gave it to me. I would rather be strong than lucky!

Howdy and welcome to the Browncoat Team!
We're a kind of laid back bunch that enjoys any and all discussion of Firefly, Serenity, and anything our BDHs are involved in. Or whatever else we decide to talk about! Please nose around and feel free to jump in!
Some of us huddle each day with quotes from Firefly or Serenity. It adds nice memories and fun. Join in if you would like. Check back later in the day to see what the quotes are.
Also, please join one or more of our team goals. They are set up to emulate our BDHs - a shiny goal for any of us!
